PTA February Training Update
PŌHAKULOA TRAINING AREA (PTA), Hawai‘i (Feb. 1, 2021) − Training during the month of February
will involve live-fire activities consisting of small arms, aviation gunnery, unmanned aircraft systems
(UAS, or drone) and artillery/mortar fire. We anticipate the peak of training will take place the last week of the month (Feb. 23-28).
The following convoys are planned:
• Feb.10 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. From PTA to Kawaihae
• Feb. 11 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. From PTA to Kawaihae
• Feb. 12 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. From PTA to Kawaihae
PTA Emergency Services (Fire, Police, and Medical) remain on base and prepared to respond to
911 calls within the Saddle Region (including the slopes of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa) to fulfill
obligations under the mutual aid agreement with Hawaii County. All PTA first responders are taking
necessary precautions during this crisis to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
PTA leadership will continually assess the environment and inform the public of any changes. All
service members training at PTA are under a Restriction of Movement (ROM), and the commander of
PTA approves all off-base activities. Safeguarding the PTA workforce and the Hawaii Island community remains the top priority.
